Who has time for Mallick when you could be watching Howard the Duck and the Rusty films? Cheesy

I've seen "The New World", and parts of "Days of Heaven" that's it.

Spellbound - 7/10 - A pretty good film marred by Gregory Peck's stiff acting and Hitchcock's annoying compulsion to explain every tiny plot detail to the auidence. Wonderfully stylish direction and cinematography throughout; the Dali-designed dream sequence was interesting but too brief to make much of an impression. Middle-of-the-road Hitchcock, which is still better than the best of many other directors.

Groggy's pathological refusal to acknowledge an Oscar-winning score is once more in evidence. One of Miklós Rózsa finest, and perhaps the first use of Theramin in a Hollywood film, but for Groggy, none of this is worth mentioning.

Quite liked it, but I'm a diehard Peck fan. Cheesy I still think it should've ended tragically to satisfy me.

So it's a good score because it uses a theramin? You can perhaps infer that I wasn't impressed by it due to my lack of mention.

Not what I said. The words "and" and "because" have different meanings.

You seem to think that I ought to have spent some time discussing that this was the first use of theramin (which admittedly I did not know, but also didn't really care about), for what reason? I'm not the Music Trivia Maven.

Since when has that been of any importance to you? Cheesy

If this were a full-length review you might have a case Jinkies, but it's a quickly-typed "thoughts on just seeing the film" you should be able to infer you won't be getting a complete break-down.

Since you insist:

Miklos Rosza's score is mediocre.

Huh, and here I thought that it was The Day the Earth Stood Still.  You learn something everyday.   Afro

There was a Russian film (Odna I believe) that used it as early as 1931.
